Feb 23 2022: Original post

As a Russian-speaking Ukrainian currently living in Poland, I have a complicated relationship with my home country. I have relatives and friends hailing from Russia; half of my family speaks Russian. Everybody in my school in Kyiv (i.e. Kiev) spoke Russian back in the early 2000s. It is true, there are millions of Russian-speaking Ukrainians. But just so you know, Ukraine is not a part of Russia; it was not created by fucking Lenin. Many Ukrainians have never been and do not want to go to Russia or be its part. The language vs. culture question is absurd. The Russian language was forced upon Ukrainians for centuries, and still, Ukrainians are different culturally. The mad tsar Putin is literally a blackmailer who imposes fear and anxiety on the entire Ukrainian nation. Everyone I know back in Kyiv prepares alarm briefcases with water and medicines, just in case of bombing, or plans to move, as I did after 2014. This is a fucking nightmare. I have anxieties of my own; I cannot stand this shit anymore. Please! This is an awareness thread. You have to know.
Ukraine is not Russia and does not want to be a part of it!

90% are inclined to sabotage, and the timing is very good. Even if there was an opportunity to launch these flows, and the conversation was about this and prices, as you can see, went down, then the destruction of the pipe (one of them is new and this is Nord Stream 2) makes it impossible to do this and immediately prices go up. Here someone very much does not want prices to go down, they are interested in high prices that are killing the glass and steel industry in Europe.

If it's sabotage, it's Russia behind it, to put pressure on the West. Russia could threaten to target Norway's pipelines.

It makes sense to break your pipelines, which already do not pump gas. If they do not want to pump, they will calmly find the reason. See who is more profitable. At first glance, there are still 3 options, but I do not have all the data and I will not make an unfounded accusation.

If it's sabotage. The only ones who could benefit are Russia, Ukraine or the USA. It won't be Ukraine as they don't have the capabilities.
It could be Russia to get out of current contracts, or maybe just want to distract and blame someone for something.
It could be the USA because it benefits them in liquid gas and they want the EU to completely get rid of Russian gas. (so do I, but I didn't do it :P)
But it could also be an accident. It is all speculation of course....

And the economy is about to be in trouble in October, as the Russian government had clearly stated in advance.

It seems to me that things could be moving in a big way soon.

It is just "icing on the cake" for their economy. Well, more the other way around. Russia doesn't instantly feel it economically. But in long term the sanctions and their reputation will be devastating on economic level. On short term they can stabilize it artificially.
When this horror war is finally over and things stabilize people will be able to see that Russia will be bankrupt for decades and in the near future it won't get any better because the sanctions stay.
I do feel for the innocent Russian civilians who don't like the genocide. They will be hit as well while they don't have anything to do with it.

Frankly, even the Minister of the Russian economy is even suggesting it in the bits and pieces that are coming out....
I wouldn't be surprised if Russia lends out territory to China for 99 years to pay off its debt.
Ideally, they would return the Northern Territories to Japan, but they will use the return as an excuse to lie and take money from us again.
(a path they have already taken once).
They have boiled us dry many times in the development of Sakhalin's natural resources.
The next Russia will not be able to recover from the state of credit [in which no one invests].
It will be impossible to maintain except when the name of the country changes or when the current territory is torn apart.
I am more concerned about whether there is an environment on earth where people can relearn how to live properly as a human being than about living in Russia.
In the next Russia, it will be understood that indifference to politics creates the tragedy of this situation.
However, if it seems that only a few rich people will run for office, the next Putin will be a clone.
The rest of the world will demand compensation until it becomes futile to live in Russia, if only a clone will appear.
If I were a Russian who had fallen into the darkness, I might start a new religious organization and take all the remaining wealth while claiming to save the Russian people and guaranteeing them a place in heaven.
I think there may have already been someone in Moscow who would have said that.⛪

In any case, I pray that damnation will fall on the wicked religious people.⚡🛸⚡
(Regardless of one's religious beliefs, those who cheat and exploit others need to be punished in some way.)
Times when a meal can be maintained even if the economy is in trouble.
Nowadays, that is in jeopardy. We have become a troubled planet.💸

An indicator of how you can beautifully present the appeal of 300,000 and that there will be a fall. I wonder how much 300,000 from 145478,000 will be? If you don't understand, then I'm talking about the population.

Actually, I gave you the figures of the entire population and the figures of those who will be called. And he offered to see how much it would be as a percentage of the entire population. The fall is supposed to be by 5%, but at the same time, no one will plunder enterprises, or are news agencies silent about this? Some of those who can be called have deferrals not because of illness (some are just ready to go if ordered, due to the fact that volunteers have already gone, and are still going), but precisely in connection with professional activities. If 4 people are needed in production, then they will not be allowed anywhere, if there are not 5 or more of them, here they can choose from them. And if they are taken away from the service sector, then this will have little effect on the real standard of living.
And as you can understand, no one thinks of lifting sanctions until such a country as the Russian Federation becomes, then they will cease to operate. Well, here already who has more strength and who has gained more fat, as well as how to use what he has in reality.

You clearly didn't read what I wrote. I said that the 300 000 was only icing on the cake. It's only a small percentage of t he economic recession that is about to come. So we totally agree, the 300 000 and the hundreds of thousands that are fleeing the country won't make that much of an impact on the economy. It mostly only impacts the opinion of the innocent Russian civilian about Putin.
But it still sucks that the innocent Russian civilian will only have conscripted dead family members and monopoly money left. And their children's children will inherit only monopoly money too. They don't deserve it... You do though... Actually with such a big mouth you deserve to be at the front.

Well, there is a slight inaccuracy here. Only those who have left the country leave the GDP, and not these 300,000, they are just included in the GDP. No one cleaned up the supply, there are just those who supply, then they even need to supply more. And oddly enough, but the main (not all) contingent of those fleeing is bloggers or managers from the service sector. Those who are connected with production, then they do not think to run. And those who can afford to spend 300 US dollars a month quietly only on the accommodation itself in hotels or houses are fleeing, but you can try earlier it was agreed for 200, but now in connection with the request, it will already be 500. As an option, those who have already bought foreign real estate. Perhaps some of those who are not ready for such spending are going and are thinking of earning on the spot, but after receiving 500 GEL (if you're lucky, and so about 100), then they will immediately understand that there will be another level, and it will be more difficult to return to what they are used to (45000-50000 rubles is about 2200-2500 and this is several times more than what they receive), and if a lot of people come, then the salaries of those who arrived will fall (as in Poland, when Ukrainians arrived there, as there is already a post about in this discussion).

and he's always nitpicking on small inaccuracies, which doesn't even change the nature of the news and wouldn't add anything to the discussion

Perhaps because it is written about the fact that the 5th column is pulling out of the country, and does not want to rock the boat. Well, this is the 5th column, those who are ready to make changes do not always go there, it happens that they go there for fame and money. Well, someone hoped that changes would be made in Russia, and they decided to dump. And so it also applies to the economy. I will lose a little, or rather I will not lose anything at all if there are not 5 groomers for dogs, but only 3. And if video bloggers showing how they drive cars on public roads in violation of traffic rules become not 3, but 1 or even 0, then very few people will lose. And so the post was about the fact that GDP is made up of all expenses and payments, and if there is less money in the service sector, then in the sphere with material goods (Washing machine, TV, and the same car) the situation will not really change.That's the whole point of the message about the sagging economy. Yes, the service sector is smaller, but from 75 to 90% will not really notice it.

Thats a quit confident statement that you wont miss the ones who leave. Who said only dog groomers and aggressive drivers will be leaving?
think more mechanics, factory workers, security guards, cashiers. People that are needed for economy to work.

Maybe so that the numbers of people leaving wont influence much. But don't be so cocky - with the amounts of men sent to frontlines together with those who leave the country it could prove to be damaging to economy in the end. 300k conscripts btw wasn't even an official number. The real one is most likely higher. Not to even talk about those who are leaving, breaking bones and being arrested for protesting. Its a shitshow and its not good for your countries health.

You should defend the practices of kremlin less and hope for a leader who wont plunge you into economical and political downwards spiral. Why are you so keen on trying to portray the bad stuff in favor of russia? Its bad and it wont change while putler is in power. Why dont you actually work towards having a normal democratic country instead of propagating its lies

And they didn't even think of leaving, unless the cashiers. It makes sense for them to leave, half of them are tied to the military-industrial complex, and they won't really let them pick them up there. Or it's in the news that was written in Europe, they didn't say, well, it was written in the Russian news. I posted the links. https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/GCLxDGs

And how many were sent before that. Official data in 150,000. But at the current mobilization there is still a figure of 300,000, no one has increased it. Regarding the fact that they row more (the same post and there it is also there), then it is already how the military commissar decides to act, there are also excesses on the ground, but at the same time filtration is carried out at the selection points. Age, illness, they check it and send it back, although sometimes they decide to send it further. And so it is not worth the task to gather everyone within one week (they want to, but it will not always work) and that's just how this mobilization will take place, then they will understand how to make it better. It turned out to be combat training. Well, those who break bones and protest, will they take part in the development of the country or do you think they will not be forced to work in prison? The salary is less, and the work is the same or even more. But those who have left, then they will not make fighters out of them.

Why dont you actually work towards having a normal democratic country instead of propagating its lies

I'm sorry, but first find out what democracy is. The entire European Union is governed by a lady who has been appointed as a manager, although the EU is considered a democracy. Moreover, the lady was not chosen, but she was simply appointed. So the general democracy or the democracy of the elect. And then in the Russian Federation, oddly enough, but the elections of the government are completely democratic. The president is chosen by the people. From ancient Greek: δημοκρατία, Latinized: dēmokratía, dēmos "people" and kratos "rule". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democracy

Let's have a moment of silence. And then laugh our asses off from this naïve view you have. It has never been a democracy and never will be. Kremlin will be ruled by whoever takes over after putler and you will never see honest elections or growth of Russia. Unless the next dictator will decide to make Russia prosper. But sadly we know those cunts only care for power. money and influence. None of which coincide with building up democratic and fare country.

All I understood was...
The 5th column is leaving, so evil dog groomers drive the dogs dangerously to a magic sphere. The dogs will be put in a washing machine while watching TV. The magic sphere solves the economic crisis and wins the war that way.
Of course the dog groomers are filming it for youtube to show the Russian population the "truth" about their magic sphere, so their economy is safe and the war is according to plan.

A bit like his previous strategy of deflecting constantly. Now it seems he is trying to bloat up the discussion so more people have something to answer to him. Maybe trying to get more rubles from kremlin for shitposting more and getting higher reactions from others.

What a "shocking" surprise - 99% vote in favor for joining Russia. Looks like those pathetic morons haven't even learned how to believably fake a referendum. And of course that dog medvedev keeps on yapping about this as well. Death to those who made the referendums happen.

I do hope wholeheartedly that west will not give in to putler if he decides to say "we keep the territories and we end the conflict".

Food for thought - It is speculated that USA could be planning to annihilate russias black sea fleet if it decides to use nuclear weapons in UA. And with conventional weapons instead of using nuclear weapons. But if USA has shifted their attitude towards seriously putting putler on his knees they probably have way more elaborate plan which involves crippling russia way more then just taking out a fleet. putler is sad pathetic thug - he only knows aggression and he only respects power. He sees compromise as weakness - that has been clear over the years. Now that USA has put them on the spot about using nuclear weapons in UA, it will be interesting to see if putler is seriously that mentally ill that he still thinks west is bluffing or will he finally give in. If he gives in and UA will be able to free occupied territory, this could potentially turn into an even longer conflict. But if it does not escalate in coming days or weeks, I believe winter could actually do to Russia what it did to nazis in WW2. You can't go in unprepared in winter time. There is literally zero chance of providing winter supplies for russian forces in UA with the level of preparedness they have right now.

Going to be few interesting days - with referendums finishing and USA and RUS again being at each others throats ... who will give in.. Many will die if Russia gets its way despite USA bluffing or not. Even if USA is able to cripple russia so much it cant do anything, the first hits on UA will cost way too many lives. If that happens - Russia has no future. I believe even China would grab a piece of that land after kremlin would be taken apart for committing such a crime. So lets hope that even with how degenerate kremlin is, they realize that any escalation towards using nuclear weapons would mean disastrous changes in political landscape.

And what can she do? I'm turning on the air conditioner now in order to lower the temperature in the apartment, otherwise it's quite hot. 26 degrees. Well, I won't turn on the air conditioner, I'll sit and sweat.Whether there are resources or not. Usually those who mine have the resources. The question is not in supplies, here they are just there or quilted jackets are not very long and sewn (Navalny (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexei_Navalny) will help in this and will make not 3 quilted jackets, but 10), but just there will be only difficulties with transportation (logistics), but it can also be solved. If we look at history, the Wehrmacht did not plan to fight in winter, they had a parade on Red Square on November 7.

If that happens - Russia has no future

If that happens - World has no future. It would be more correct this way. And then who will have time to apply more and who hits more accurately. But it will affect the whole world. Perhaps some countries will secretly want to solve their problems with their neighbors.

Deal with it. World can live easily without Russia. You don't manufacture anything, your contribution to business is non existent, to science non existent. Only thing you do is oppress neighbors and blackmail the world with resources. But obviously we will find alternatives. And in hypothetical scenario of Russia seizing to exist there will be someone to take over.

So world would absolutely never end just because Russia wouldn't exist. Sorry to burst your bubble but Russia is "superpower" only due to resources and land. And all that is only a problem for the rest of the world as you hold these recourses not us. Putler had made an image of Russia being strong military power - which was a lie. He is pathetic sad subhuman and your military is a laughingstock. What exactly in this makes the world dependent on Russia?

I just love Russian confidence. China would eat you up first chance they get. Don't consider them your friends. And don't get your nickers in a twist - this is not some hate speech or call for destruction of Russia. If you are so bold to claim world would end, I will be just as bold in how you are seen by the world.

secondly, we share a lot of information here, not only from ukrainian sources, but i already said this before, you call everything, which doesn't align with russian propaganda, western propaganda, like it's a big conspiracy against russia and the whole world is telling lies and russia is the only one telling the truth, that's not sane thinking

Не принятие. Понимаю. Вспомним подъём флага на Змеином острове. Сперва оказалось, что флаг сбросили с вертолёта, но его ни кто не вешал, хотя все украинские медиа написали про то, что его повесили (по поводу того, что флаг бросили, то тут уже я очень недоволен, это просто халатное обращение с символом страны, флаг нельзя бросать, в особенности своей страны, тому кто это сделал, то трибунал по нему плачет, показал своё неуважение к стране), после опять медиа украинские писали, что при установке флага были уничтожены многие вооружения противника, на что опять идёт вопрос, а в кого стреляли, если там никого не было, может тут решили свою технику так списать. Вот это и есть нюансы.

It is very important to relate to the symbols of power, and the flag is one of the symbols of power. If you don't respect the symbols of power, then you don't respect the country. I just wrote this in addition.
As it was, I had nothing against the fact that the Flag was hoisted over the island again.

Gas prices jumped on the suspected sabotage and rose further after Gazprom warned that the flows through Ukraine were also at risk because of a legal spat. If Ukraine flows are halted, western Europe would be cut off, leaving just the TurkStream pipeline sending gas to Turkey and small European neighbors still friendly with Russia.

I mean it's rather clear that Russia has been the one to damage the pipelines. It will be most likely used as another political weapon to leave UA for Russia in turn to resume flow through Ukraine. They always need a reason to lie.. something to try to build on... What better option then an actually downed pipeline.... unfortunately for them no one believes Russia anymore. So if they claim they are looking for saboteur - it was themselves who did it.

Have you read this message https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/56myucx . True, they forgot to write Poland there, they also have good prospects in connection with the destruction of the pipe, due to the fact that there is an LNG receiving terminal and the Baltic Pipe has just been opened. https://www.newsweek.com/putin-only-needed-nord-stream-pipeline-blackmail-war-eu-official-1746851 https://t.me/MariaVladimirovnaZakharova/3812 The question about which was asked by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova in connection with this message from the Polish MEP, ex-Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski. The point of Russia is to ruin the gas pipeline. And so people are already discussing there in order to write a petition and turn to Kaliningrad on the traverse of Kaliningrad "Nord Stream -2". Here the supply of Kaliningrad will be good and it will be possible not to look at the continuation of this show. And so if it is necessary not to supply gas through it, then it can be done in other ways, and one showed. Turbines need to be repaired and until there is no repair, then there will be no pumping. And you can repair it for a long time or for a very long time. You can always find flaws if you want to find them.

Russia is behind this sabotage, to say that no pipeline is safe, to put pressure on the West. The sabotage occured one day after Poland and Norway opened the alternative Baltic Pipe running through Denmark, it is not a coincidence. Russia threatens to sabotage Norway's pipelines.

In June 2014, Galina Timchenko, the former editor-in-chief of the largest Russian news Internet resource, established Medusa Project SIA in Latvia. This is evidenced by the data of the Latvian commercial register. Timchenko confirmed to Izvestia that she was the sole owner of.
In July 2014, Medusa registered with the Riga tax, and in August began recruiting staff at Latvian recruiting portals - in a new Russian-language online media.
The authorized capital of Medusa Project SIA is €2.8 thousand. SIA is an analogue of Russian LLC, the announced authorized capital must be paid immediately by at least 50%, another 50% must be paid within a year after registration. The only owner of Medusa Project with a 100 percent share is a citizen of the Russian Federation Galina Timchenko. In July, the company registered as a taxpayer in a residential building (34A Dzirnavu Street, apartment 12A) in the Central District of Riga, Riga people like to call it quiet; nearby, by the way, the Russian consulate.
The area of ​ ​ apartments in house 34A on Dzirnavu Street reaches two hundred square meters, so it is possible that the editorial office will work here - interviewed Riga realtors said that offices are often located in apartment buildings in this area, this is a common practice. Timchenko refused to explain whether the editors of the new publication will work at this address. When asked who owns the apartment, whether it will rent them, the interlocutor was also sharp: "It's not your business, it's a private story."

As you said earlier, https://www.steamgifts.com/go/comment/QJ21qHV then if the founder is from a certain country, then these media, even if they broadcast to another country, belong to the country from which the founder is.

Of course as always no need to take everything at face value. Articles can be wrong as well. I just don't see the point in adding such a reference to each comment.

But as for counting votes at gun point - that has been reported since beginning of referendums already by other news sites as well. That the vote gatherers have been accompanied by military and anyone who votes against is noted down by military.

Either way these referendums are a sham and not recognized by anyone. Dissent is not surprising within people living there.

There were also videos which clearly show heavily armed gunmen following the women with voting urns. So this is not an exaggeration. Also, the final percentage is telling the same story indirectly.
Problem is, russia doesn't allow real reporters to the places they own - only those who can support "russia's picture". So paid pro-russian "journalists" only.

I don't think I need to say this, but the fact that the voting takes place during the "bombing" and "shooting" period itself shows that there is no legitimacy whatsoever to the vote.

If this were an African country in the midst of "bombing" or "shooting," UN forces would provide security and ensure the fairness of the vote.
 This is just another "terrorist" act that threatens the integrity of a territory or state without international consent or neutrality.

Interesting. Kremlin has decided to postpone actual accession for future. Reason being discontent with mobilization efforts and realizing Russian citizens simply don't see the point in doing that.

Seeing how putler likes to be symbolic he probably wants to make these states part of Russia with some big propaganda piece which he will try to use to brainwash citizens even more. Other reasons could involve actually worrying about retaliation from west.

IMO he might be realizing that he simply doesn't have enough forces to keep the territories and simply announcing you have annexed these regions would mean jack shit and most likely create backlash from citizens if he can't enforce what he preaches.

I mean Qatar has lost zero business or partners over countless allegations of slavery and human rights violations. Same for China.
They are a superpower that holds enormous amounts of resources. Sorry but your comments start to remind me of cement. Uselessly rebutting with open ended statements and rhetorical questions.

PS. if we are talking more seriously - Russia has huge web of illegal dealings going on within neighboring country businesses and governments. The sanctions are ignored mostly by companies that have boards filled with gazprom people or kremlin sponsored businessman. It all looks legit until you start to dig deeper. They have fictional companies between whom they devie the shares so theoretically they dont have major shareholder position, but they get leading vote in background. So its all a dirty political game. But fortunately putler shot in his own leg with the war - these secretly held companies are coming out in the light as ignoring sanctions shine light on wrongdoings and a lot of investigative journalists start to dig deeper. Many companies that people where content with are being ostracized for dealing with Russia. So what you mention is hardly something to take into consideration if we discuss how content the world is with current dictatorship of russia.

PPS. an interesting material about this topic - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMBpbo8Wkwo
Basically Rosneft which is state company has "hired" numerous high standing politicians from west to lobby Russias interests in west. It includes politicians from Austria, Finland, Latvia etc. And payed them 1.5-2 mi a year. Really - how can you say wth a straight face Russia is normal and not hated?

There is a certain incentive for Russia to be the one to suffer if gas becomes cheaper.
(as a way to buy time to keep everyone but Russia from leaving the state of economic crisis)

Well, in terms of timing things, it was time for gas prices to come down.
To the extent that they are going up because of this news, the world's gas companies will probably make up the deficit.

For now, it seems reasonable to assume that it is artificial based on the monitoring logs of various countries.
Let's hope gas prices settle down in less than two weeks and we get more reports about the culprit.

IAE is suspected of trying to obtain excess energy by operating nuclear power plants in Japan as a countermeasure.📝

Russian emigration following the 2022 invasion of Ukraine

Following the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, more than 300,000 Russian citizens and residents are estimated to have left Russia by mid-March 2022, at least 500,000 by the end of August 2022, and more than 800,000 by September 2022 as political refugees and economic migrants, and due to a desire to evade criminal prosecution for opposing the invasion. Aside from fear of being conscripted after president Vladimir Putin's announcement of partial mobilization, those fleeing voiced reasons such as disagreement with the military operation, the uselessness and cruelty of war, sympathy for Ukraine, disagreement with the political roots of the war with Ukraine, the rejection of killing, and an assessment that Russia is no longer the place for their family.

Soon the Russian exodus will reach one million.
It's not just the brains, it's also about 15,000 millionaires who are expected to leave Russia in 2022.
The Russian labor market is losing millions of people, there are those who have fled Russia, but also all those who are needed for the war effort. There is a third category, those who hide to avoid mobilization but remain in Russia. The Russian economy will suffer from the loss of labour.

Only two choices left for Russians in Lyman - Ukrainian official

Russian troops there have asked their superiors to leave the city - but this request was rejected, a senior Ukrainian official says.
Luhansk regional head Serhiy Haidai says the Russian soldiers now have only two choices: to try to break through or surrender.
Haidai adds that almost all withdrawal and ammunition supply routes are now cut off to Lyman.

Twitter

Up to 5.5 thousand #Russian soldiers may be surrounded in #Lyman, #Donetsk region, said the advisor to the head of the #Ukrainian presidential office, Oleksiy #Arestovych.

Twitter

It's 1 a.m. in Ukraine and there's a battle underway on the outskirts of Kreminna, Luhansk region.
Advancing Ukrainian troops are turning the Russian retreat from Lyman, Donetsk region, into a rout.

Funny fact, this might be the first time in history a country annexed territory it’s retreating from.
The liberation continues, the sham referendums are useless!

i've also read somewhere, that the soldiers in Lyman are professional soldiers and not a bunch of conscripts, so this will hurt russia even more, probably the whole north will be deoccupied now

"We will defend our land with all our strength and all our means," he said, calling on "the Kyiv regime to immediately cease hostilities and return to the negotiation table".

After all he did proclaim that the occupied regions are part of Russia and citizens are Russians now. I do have a feeling that he is finally trying to close some deal in face of losses in Lyman.
What a fucking mlunatic. For the love of god I hope west will show middle finger to this scum and he wont go through with his bluff of using nuclear weapons

Thanks to the Rashist ceremony, new works to enrich Putin's collection of bullshit.

🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

Putler - "They have made a choice to be with their people, their motherland, to live with its fate, and to triumph with it. Truth is on our side. Russia is with us!"
"People living in Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson region and Zaporizhzhia region are becoming our compatriots forever."
"The people have made their choice," Putler said. "This is the will of millions of people."
"We have become stronger because we are together. With us is the truth, and indeed, the power! And that means victory! Victory will be ours!"
Putler referring to the errors of the West - "For decades, they tried to eradicate the historical consciousness of these people, to destroy their traditions, to forbid them to speak in their native language, to forbid their culture. Nothing worked," ... Putler intends to do all of this against the Ukrainians, and many more, if he succeeds.
About his own sabotage - "Sanctions were not enough for the Anglo-Saxons: they moved on to sabotage. It is hard to believe but it is a fact that they organised the blasts on the Nord Stream international gas pipelines, which run along the bottom of the Baltic Sea ... It is clear to everyone who benefits from this."
A Putler gem - "The dictatorship of the Western elites is directed against all societies, including the peoples of the Western countries themselves. This is a challenge to all. This is a complete denial of humanity, the overthrow of faith and traditional values. Indeed, the suppression of freedom itself has taken on the features of a religion: outright Satanism."

Since Ukraine was about to lose more than 15% of its land by Russia's unilateral declaration, the option of repairing relations with Russia without joining NATO has completely disappeared.

It seems that this intention has been expressed.👀
To be honest, I saw a story that made sense to me when I saw a bit of "Putin's press conference" and replaced what he claimed as "other countries' affairs" with "Russia's affairs".
It feels natural to make this choice if you listen to the less than *** words and actions at the end of such a great war.

Russian MoD said that they decided to 'withdraw troops from Lyman and move them to better positions'. But Ukraine says there are still around 5000 soldiers in Lyman defending, so I suppose they have been abandoned by Russia?

you're talking BS again, because it's just the other way round, medias in countries with low press freedom and freedom of speech usually are the ones, who spread lies. I won't explain the situation in countries with high press freedom and freedom of speech index to you and the self-respect of the medias there, to report only truthful information and how they would receive flak from all the other medias, if they would report such BS, a thing which is absolutely missing in countries with synchronized and state-owned media, as you constantly fail to understand things outside of the propaganda bubble

The media I read mentions both Russian and Ukrainian claims. But it always says if it's verified or not. If it's not verified, I don't trust it. Of course I speculate a bit with myself but I draw no conclusion unless it's verified.

So, let's start step by step.

You: - you prefer Ukrainian propaganda ?

So, you are calling Ukrainian news a PROPAGANDA. What do yo mean? Propaganda is something aimed to brainwash one's minds to force them calling black as white.
What about Ukrainian propaganda worries you the most? Where it's lies lays?

You: - We were talking about Ukrainian press lying several times, mr sarcastic. had nothing to say and switched to sarcasm?

What about that? You said nothing about real ruzzian propaganda called this full scale war and invasion to other country as special military operation. But you are constantly pointing out some mysterious fact of lie of Ukrainian media?
Can you share your findings?

You: -The problem is - in many cases our media does not hold the standards you mentioned and simply repeat Ukrainian propaganda.

And again - the problem lays in the propaganda of country bombed and raped by ruzzians. Of course the troublemakers are those silly Ukrainians and their propaganda.

You: - Sane people prefer getting solid evidence before blaming. Question about your claims. Why then Ukrainians go to Russian controlled territories? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCijBcFdO5M

So, as a proof of Ukrainian propaganda you linked the YouTube video named "Ukrainian families navigate green corridor to Russian-occupied territories".
Ahha!!!! You see!!!! Ukrainians are seeking their salvation in Russian-occupied territories!!!! ( Finally you got your point proofed, and it is clearly depicted in the reportage by CNN!)

You: - Ps: I still have a question why Ukrainians go to Russian controlled territories. Anyone have courage to answer?

You continue enjoying your triumph. No one even dare to deny the fact that Ukrainians actually love ruzzians so much in real!!! Even CNN is stating that, opposing to that ugly Ukrainian propaganda, right?

No. Wrong.
Even despite the English is your native language, not mine, I manage to listen what is all about in this CNN reportage. Why you failed?

So second by second English translation for you:

0-11: Video started with statement that families with possessions and pets are all going to russ-occupied territories.

12-26: complains on mud and blown bridges

27- 35: Ukrainian emergency services doing their best to get people through all that obstacles. (wait what?? Ukrainian emergency services? Rly?)

36-43: Ukrainian officer in Ukrainian language gave some explanations

44-49: About green corridor TO and OUT russ-occupied territories

50-1:03: But it is obvious that the traffic is almost one way these days. Be course about 6000 ppl STUCK on the russ side (in English it means they are not allowed by ruzzian to go to ukr side, just translating you English to English) only 76 crossed.

1:04 - 1:04: many many hundreds went other way (meaning TO russ-occupied territories. So we see 6000 ppl not letting travel to ukr and many hundreds which are driving from ukr without any delays. Still nothing bothers you? )

1:06 - 1:19 Young pal traveling to rus is asked where is he going. To Kherson. Why. Be course my parents are there. Is it dangerous because of ruzzies? I know, but I have to take my parents to Odessa (not occupied ukr city)

1:20 - 1:28 EVERYONE leaving Ukrainian controlled territories are telling us similar thing. They are hoping to come back

1:29 - 1:46 Another dude is driving his mom to pack his grandmother left on occupied territory but may be his mom will stay there with grand mom (it is more or less safe - even ruzzies are mostly not raping grandmas, only kill. I was hesitating to say that or not, but the sister of my wife's grandma was killed by russian shelling. She stayed there, so close to russ-occupied territories to keep the house while the younger rest of the family left. No granny, no house for my relatives to return. Believe me or not,). On the question why he took his young daughter with him, he replies - if they can not return to ukr side (unlike you they are quite aware that ruzzi are not about letting them back) so in case they will stuck on occupied territories he prefer to keep the family not split.

1:47 - 2:00 Dude who is trying to get a profit driving with supplies to the place where the supplies are critically lacking ( to the russ-occupied territories. Strange, why so...)

2:01 - 2:17 Emergency services saying that on normal day they get traffic FROM the occupied territories. Today is different (showing empty road and Ukrainian emergency service trucks on it). Today they (ukr rescuers) understand there will be nobody else coming from ruz side (strange, why?)

2:18 - Ruzzians are blocking so many desperate to leave (I see I need to explain it due your lack of English - leave ruzz occupied territory)

And so on. All your comments on this thread are similar to mentioned above. So, you still do not understand why I counted you as an another ruzzi war supporters on this thread?

P.S. I totally aware that my words will change nothing and you will keep supporting ruzzian waged war

First of all,

you prefer Ukrainian propaganda

If you read carefully later I admitted that my statement was too harsh.

You said nothing about real ruzzian propaganda

Wy would I say anything about something I don't know?
On opposite Ukrainian propaganda is being translated directly to our media. Perfect example: https://edition.cnn.com/europe/live-news/russia-ukraine-war-news-10-01-22/h_9d5735fdd82f5f1ad5cb3ea4738f77c1

. On the question why he took his young daughter with him, he replies

This is from 1:29 - 1:46. You wrong here. Reporter says he shrugs. Right after that reporter says: If anyone willing to stay on the russian side no one whiling to admit it. You can check it with subtitles.
I see you struggle to admit that some of your fellow Ukrainians are secretly in love with Poo.

Accept your correction. As I said, I'm not English fluent speaker.

But as for the rest - did I give you some clarification on this: "I still have a question why Ukrainians go to Russian controlled territories. Anyone have courage to answer?" And why one have to have COURAGE to answer that - what was on your mind when you mentioned that?

Of course there are a lot of ppl with Ukrainian passports who are fond of ruzzia, hands down. Most of them are the russian remnants, left in Ukraine when Soviet Union collapsed.
They are minority against those Ukrainians who disrespects ruzzia now and willing to fight against it till our victory. (Even judging by that CNN reportage we can so-so compare those quantities)

And as for the news you linked. I've read that article. What's wrong with it? I'm aware about that accident from local papers.

I mentioned courage because most of the people who I asked questions didn't bother to answer and just went strait up to calling me troll. It looks for me like they have no courage to answer difficult questions. But it is ok.

About CNN article - it might be true it might be not. Because CNN explicitly saying "CNN could not independently verify the allegations." What it means? It means that they got it straight from Ukraine and God knows if it is true or not. Sadly I saw too many fakes from Ukrainian sources, especially at the first days of war. They sort of lost credibility.

For me it looks OK when any media may publish some foreign (or even internal) news with the reference to it's original source (another media)

But idk why they put that extra disclaimer "CNN could not independently verify the allegations".
Maybe it's be course of the fact how serious subject is - it is about 20 civil ppl including 10 children murdered.
That's why "CNN could not independently verify the allegations" (in my opinion) is about their source explicitly pointing russians as the murderers in this particular case.

It happens in gray area - the area between war sides - and that could possibly be the result of acts of any of the sides.
If any war correspondent of CNN can reach that area, he without doubts (basing on the look of shell craters) find out the strike direction and can witness the guilty side. Without that CNN can rely on the investigation side - it is Ukrainian police forces - so may be just to cover their ass they put that disclaimer.

But I need to declare that Ukrainian side in such cases always bring there a lot of accredited journalist from foreign media to make sure Ukraine will not be insulted as liars.

Sadly I saw too many fakes from Ukrainian sources, especially at the first days of war. They sort of lost credibility.
Can you name one or two such fakes? Especially at the first days of war... I really intrigued

Man, I speechless.

You called the stuff like Ghost of Kiev a outrageous and arrogant FAKES baked by Ukrainian propaganda.

Ghost of Kiev is a collective image of Ukrainian pilots fighting and dying for their country in real, ppl here in Ukraine aware of that, but some of us needed a symbol of our resistance to comfort weak souls. We lost a lot, a lot of pilots the first days of war, and our sky warriors keeps dying in the fight with ruzzi intruders. Despite we have ten times less planes, Ukraine still keep it's superior in the sky for a half of the year of full scale war waged by ruzzi.

And I see, you were extremely outraged by the photo in social medias picturing boy and girl waving hands towards Ukrainian wariors. What a bold fake of Ukrainian propaganda it is - the photo is not new! It is dated 2016, aha!

Did you know that the war between Ukraine and Ruzzia started not ZZ.0Z.Z0ZZ. It started 8 years ago, in 2014, when ruzzia occupied our Crimea and a portion Donbass we were fighting from that time until now.

F*ck, all those 'cynical' fakes of Ukrainian propaganda that angered you so much (from your source https://www.bbc.com/news/60554910 - FIXED the URL since I meant your original link to bbc) are not worth a damn. What a person you are, that due to such unimaginably insignificant inconsistencies start to argue so fiercely against Ukrainians all over this thread, and see no real propaganda and fakes from rus side aimed to supports and whitens the invasion to another country.

I have no idea what is wrong with you if you are not ruzzi as I thought initially. I doubt you can learn from what I'm trying to say to you. Or from this resource where all those russian fakes, you successfully failed to see, are collected, starting from 2014, when those fakes we unbearable - like a crucified boy in panties

Rly? After 7 months of aggressive war started by Russia against independent country you still don't know if Russia do fakes?
But you are fully aware of all Ukrainian ones, even such ugly and devastating [fake - I needed to clarify this since ones have trouble understanding this] as The Ghost of Kiev
Oh, boy...

Dude, the FAKE is not the Ghost of Kiev - the real fake is the reasons of why Russia started this invasion. And the fake is your impartiality. Cmon, "I don't know if Russia do fakes, I think it does, yada yada yada"

And the fake is your believe that "it [autonomy ] gives some degree of freedom of what to do - stay with Ukraine or stay with Russia?"
There is law, Ukrainian law, that gave autonomy to Crimea within the country of Ukraine - don't you challenge the legitimacy of the fact of such autonomy, given by Ukrainian law, right?
And in the same time this law forbid any of the part of the country leave without full-country referendum, not only that given part's population.

So or believe that autonomy of Crimea was illegal or believe that Crimea has no right by law to decide to stay or to leave.

I like how you cannot properly debate with me and switch to personal. :)

What do you mean by switching to personal? These my words "I have no idea what is wrong with you if you are not ruzzi as I thought initially."?

I debated with you properly. Answer to all your fakes by facts. But you still prefer to play the innocent fool line: "I know everything about all Ukrainian fakes and defame them in this thread. But pardon me, I know nothing of ruzzi fakes at all, yada yada yada "

There is a problem with people like you. You prefer to see much more in my words than I actually said.

Regarding Crimea - I believe you are referring to Ukrainian constitution? Could you please tell me then what happened to your 2014 president? Was he constitutionally impeached?

I am glad that you are interested in the history of my country and want to understand the ongoing processes. I am sure, knowing more about my country and Russia, you will no longer be that naive to believe that Ukrainians loves Russia and see it as their savior, as happened to you recently. When you were asking for courage ( this along eloquently shows your way of thinking and the side you are leaning ) to answer your question "Why then Ukrainians go to Russian controlled territories?"

So, my dear American friend, since I see that you are completely far from understanding the processes in Ukraine, it will be easier for me to start with an analogy.

I assume that you understand that your country has certain geopolitical opponents. Well, let's say it's China. But there are also allies, say, Britain, France or Germany, whatever - Europe. So common sense dictates, that your country must strengthen relations with allies and be careful not to become dependent on opponents.

And at some point in time, you notice that the president you voted for, say, Trump, begins to reject your allies, and in contrast to this, even aim his policy at friendship with China. All kinds of concessions to China, then taking huge government loans from China to raise the falling economy, and so on.
Moreover, he declares that instead of a transatlantic alliance, he is going to create a single union state with China, in which the United States will enter as an equal member.

I dare to suggest that this may not come to your taste, and you will go out to a peaceful protest against the creation of union state with China, and you will raise your civil voice for strengthening ties with Europe.

During a protest rally, the police will beat you to pulp, but luckily for you, other Americans will support you and start a massive protest against such a pro-Chinese president and police outrage.
And at a certain point, your president will cowardly run away from your country (China's special services will help him evacuate), and run away to China. Then he will start giving interviews and press-conferences from Beijing. Moreover he will sign out papers allowing the Chinese army to enter US territory to pacify your protest.

Let's assume that your country is a presidential-parliamentary republic - so in the case of president's death, self-elimination or inability to fulfill his duties as president, all power passes to the next governing body in the list - Parliament. And current parliament members will choose the person as an acting president until the early presidential elections are held ASAP. And the next president elected by popular vote becomes the new head of the country.

Can you understand this analogy?

Now, in my text above, replace the USA with Ukraine, Trump with Yanukovych, China with Russia, and European countries with European countries. And you will get the answer to your question, what happened to my president in 2014

Kadyrov suggested the use of low-yield nuclear weapons. But that wasn't the dumbest part, after criticizing Russian military officials, Kadyrov said - "Army nepotism will not lead to good," ... "In the army it is necessary to appoint as commanders people of a strong character, courageous, principled, who worry about their fighters, who tear their teeth for their soldier, who know that a subordinate cannot be left without help and support. There is no place for nepotism in the army, especially in difficult times." [LINK]
It's unreal, Kadyrov lectures others about nepotism. He also said commanders should worry about their fighters ... earlier he wanted to atomize the whole thing!

Humiliation for Vladimir Putin as Ukrainians liberate key city of Lyman | Ukraine | The Guardian
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/oct/01/humiliation-for-vladimir-putin-as-ukrainians-liberate-key-city-of-lyman


Russia withdraws troops after Ukraine encircles key city | AP News
https://apnews.com/article/russia-ukraine-business-kidnapping-government-and-politics-cce973f2c43dc0d85883d46642fc970c


Hours after Putin's bedlam of "declaring annexation," the key stronghold appears to be back in Ukrainian hands.

It seems certain that it has been recaptured, as the Russian government has also announced that it will move the fighting to a more advantageous location.


LouiseMensch 🇺🇸🇺🇦 on Twitter: "9/ Trouble for Putin. “Grey Zone” Wagner Telegram openly blames Putin that @MOD_Russia, encircled in #Lyman, were not allowed to retreat JUST BECAUSE OF HIS FAKE #ANNEXATION SPEECH. Quoting one guy who did retreat (and isn’t optimistic) " / Twitter
https://twitter.com/LouiseMensch/status/1576272342698688512


In this tweet, there was a detailed explanation of Putin's lie about Lyman's lies in his speech.
And you can hear the anger of the Russian soldiers who were deceived by the Russian government.

Another Russian war crime, More than 20 civilians, including 10 children, killed in Russian convoy shelling, says regional authority

The bodies of 22 civilians, including 10 children, were found following Russian shelling on a convoy of cars near the town of Kupiansk in eastern Ukraine, the Kharkiv regional prosecutor's office said Saturday.
"According to the data of investigators, the cars were shot by the Russian army on September 25, when civilians were trying to evacuate. Two cars burned completely. According to preliminary information, 22 people died, including 10 children. The investigation of the scene is ongoing," the office said on the social media platform Telegram.

It happened on September 25, near the city of Kupiansk. It's near the front line, which is why the information only appears now.

If you don't want to be called a troll, provide factual data at least.

Trump received 46% of votes (which was btw less then Clinton did). But that is just from those who voted. Only around 64% of people voted at all.
That is around 60k votes for Trump, out of 250k citizens who could vote. So we know for certain only a fourth of USA actually voted for him. Could be higher, but not half of the country.

Just wanted to point this out as you don't come off very credible or someone to have structured discussion with. Are you really surprised Prosac called you a troll?

To provide factual data you need to learn how to distinguish numbers first. 60k = 60000. 250k = 250000. You better go back to school and don't burn your time playing games on Steam. Speaking of Trump my point was not a number of votes. Even if only 100k voted for him, I don't see this as a crime or something shameful. It is called freedom to vote.

The whole my conversations with Prosac etc etc started from this commentary. This is why I asked my main question again and you called me troll because of that. Coming back to mass murders. But why population move east if they know Russians will kill them? That sound a bit fishy for me. I think that more likely those mass graves are casualties from many days of fighting in the area, not Russians killing them on purpose. They might be as well casualties from Ukraine shelling which we prefer close our eyes to.

Do i have to explain to you, what russias goal is in this war, eliminating ukrainian consciousness and culture, and which actions they take to achieve this? Ukrainians in russia are no threath to them, because they will be assimilated into russian culture and as a minority can be easily opressed.

Don't you find it strange - them going to occupied territories?

as i read, many Ukrainians have relatives in russia, so maybe they decided to flee to them, instead of fleeing to the west, not knowing what awaits them there. They have to go to occupied territory first, yes, but do you really think they will stay there or move on to russia?

and i have to agree with borsdy, your questions really look like JAQing off, like you said many Ukrainians, so you conclude from a handful of people to what the majority of Ukrainians may think?

old IAEA press release


Update 110 – IAEA Director General Statement on Situation in Ukraine | IAEA
https://www.iaea.org/newscenter/pressreleases/update-110-iaea-director-general-statement-on-situation-in-ukraine

After receiving information about the detention of Ihor Murashov, Director General of Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has been in contact with the relevant authorities and has been informed that Mr Murashov is in temporary detention, Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi said today.

The IAEA, in line with its nuclear safety and security mandate, has been actively seeking clarifications and hopes for a prompt and satisfactory resolution of this matter, Director General Grossi said. He reiterated that this detention has a very significant impact on at least two of the seven indispensable nuclear safety and security pillars that he outlined at the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine.

“Such a detention of any member of the plant staff would be a source of grave concern in itself, but also for its psychological impact and pressure on the rest of the staff - which is detrimental to nuclear safety and security”, said Director General Grossi.

Furthermore, the Director General of the ZNPP has the responsibility to ensure the nuclear safety and security of the plant. He ensures that all the plant’s operational procedures are implemented, including the ones related to nuclear safety, radiation safety of operating personnel, and to nuclear security. Additionally, he activates and leads the response to any on-site nuclear emergency.

“His absence from duty in this way also has an immediate and serious impact on decision-making in ensuring the safety and security of the plant,” Director General Grossi added.

Director General Grossi expressed the hope that Mr Murashov will return to his family safely and promptly and will be able to resume his important functions at the plant.

After Lyman's defeat, the mood on Russian state TV is rather gloomy. https://twitter.com/JuliaDavisNews/status/1576331334317879297

A pundit - "I don't remember the precedent in world history, when territories we don't even control, were absorbed into the country." ... "Yeah, after the rest of the territories will be liberated. You know, it's very difficult to argue with dreamers, who live in their own world. I see the dynamics of the military actions on the front. We aren't talking about what is happening near Lyman. Who forbade you to talk about it? It's a bit wild to pontificate about how we will liberate Zaporizhzhia with 710k residents. Ask anyone here, when they're in the make-up room. I think anyone will honestly admit they don't know whether the mobilization will help us or not, to change the course of military actions. So far, thing aren't going so well. It's easy to say, 'after the liberation of Zaporizhzhia'. Yeah, try liberating it, the way everything is going."


The reality is harsh, Russian propagandists are at a loss for words to explain Lyman's defeat. https://twitter.com/JuliaDavisNews/status/1576410989104627712

Intriguing comment from the host - "Russia won yesterday. I'm not conducting any psychotherapy. I don't think that is necessary."

I smell some denial issues. Not acknowledging reality or denying the consequences of this reality is a big problem in Russia. 😁

Andrey Gurulyov, former deputy commander of Russia's southern military district, said he couldn't explain the Lyman defeat. Until he changes his mind and starts talking about the real issue.

Gurulyov - "The problem we have is the constant delivery of good reports, or you can call it constant lying. This system does not go from bottom to the top," SUDDEN DISCONNECTION

Probably a censorship move, Gurulyov was suddenly disconnected. Before he could criticizes more the chain of command, or even talks about the endemic corruption in Russia.
Gurulyov was later re-connected, but didn't say much else about Lyman or endemic lying.

It is divided into 1114 parts, so it would be more correct to read it directly

It seems that Russia's internal debate over Lyman is getting worse.
Even Russian TV seems to be suggesting that the reservists will not contribute to the recapture.
It seems that Russian military bloggers are deepening their criticism of the Russian government.
So far, they have been left alone as they were patriotic for Russia, but there may be censorship or some kind of interference in the future.


ISW on Twitter: "10/ #Russian State Duma MPs withdrew a law that would have given mobilized men a one-time payment of 300,000 rubles (about $4,980) and other benefits, without providing a reason for their decision. " / Twitter

Then, in October📝
, it seems that the Russian government is not paying the promised compensation, perhaps because the Russian economy has reached its limits.💸😫🔥🏧🏦💳🔥
This is a bad sign for the Russian people, just as it was at the beginning of the war when the central bank manipulated funds.

In any case, the overall report was one that we felt Ukraine had the upper hand.
It is beginning to look as if the Russian people may soon start a revolution.

One more stone to add to the Russian decline: Russian deputy and retired general Andriy Gurulev reported that 1.5 million sets of military uniforms of the Russian Armed Forces, which were intended for the mobilized, disappeared from warehouses in Zabaikalia in an inexplicable way. [LINK]
(Andriy Gurulev = Andrey Gurulyov, him previously)
Some say the uniforms were never made, the money is in someone's yacht.

Take ISW information with a grain of salt. They are funded partially by "defense contractor" companies. They also see to be very much for US military intervention in many arenas. see their Wikipedia for proof of this. This doesn't mean the information is false but knowing who is telling you thing lets you see their possible motives.

Yes. I respect your opinion.

My impression is that it would be advisable to check the reports of international organizations after looking at the Russian and Ukrainian reports.
I think it is also right to wait for fact-checking by other countries or not to jump to conclusions.
However, since more than half a year has passed, there are probably many matters that have become clear as to whether they are true or false.

So far, the Russian government reports are not authentic.
The Russian private press has credibility, but it's hard to believe it right off the bat because sometimes "the same faces" appear.
In the Russian press, there are "rumors" and "wishful thinking" followed by no "conclusions" or "desired results," and I feel that there is enough buildup to make the Russian public understand that there are aspects of the situation that are not being "reported.

I sometimes feel that these are not funny stories, much like the events at the end of the war in Japan.
In the end, what makes things better is "the honesty of the country (politicians) to its own people.
This is true for any country.

Yeah, I don't trust the reports directly put out by Russia or Ukraine. I wait for 3rd party verification of the information.

They are a neo-con think tank supported by the MI complex, which is to say, a cut out that writes policy for nasty deep state shenanigans, especially in Syria. If you are interested, some of their doings are mentioned in this series of articles.
